After racking to secondary (2 5 gallon buckets), I added 1 oz Cascade (dry hop) to one of the buckets. I'm thinking I'll get basically a hoppy pale ale out of that bucket and an amber ale out of the other -- but need to see how it comes out. I might have a pale ale and an IPA...!

10 Dec 2005: Yep, I'm going with a pale ale for the one without the extra hops. It it similar to the 'Cascade' batches, but not as hoppy. I haven't tapped the other (I'm calling it Jones Lake Ale "DH")

26 Jan 2006: updating notes -- we polished off the "DH" batch over Christmas, it was the better of the two versions, but then, I like a hoppy beer. Batch 28 is a repeat, with all 10 gallons dry hopped.
